Last Saturday, The Iowa State Turf Club put their time and efforts back into the Ames community. The Turf Club collaborated with the United Way and donated 15 hours to a yard pick-up in West Ames. Five undergraduates in the Iowa State Turfgrass Science Program were able to make the event and give back to their community. The designed cleanup area was approximately a 10,000 sq. ft. creek bed overgrown with waist high weeds and woody material.
The United Way of Story County (Ames, IA) celebrated its 60thanniversary this year. I would like to use the rest of this blog to thank the United Way of Story County for their continued efforts and lending a helping hand to hard-working families. We were happy to donate a few hours of our Saturday to this strong community partnership. The United Way of Story County is a strategic community leader and has built county-wide partnerships. The Iowa State Turf Club looks forward to continued opportunities to create a stronger community.
